    In Kill Bill, Tarantino brings delicious sin back to movies -- the thrill you get from something down, dirty and dangerous. show more

    It boggles the mind that after six years of silence, all Tarantino has to offer is this garbage. show more

    Bill re-establishes that Tarantino ranks with "Boogie Nights'" Paul Thomas Anderson as one of the few Hollywood filmmakers of the past 25 years with the stuff to win a lifetime achievement award. show more

    Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill inflicts intolerable cruelty on its characters, and on its audience -- though I'd like to believe that there is no mainstream audience for what has already been described, quite correctly, as the most violent movie ever released by an American studio. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Structurally and narratively amputated, Volume 1 retains head and guts but loses its heart and gams to the second installment. Maybe Tarantino figured that Thurman's legs, as long as the Mississippi, were sufficient to carry this half of a movie. show more

    This long-awaited movie has been unwisely chopped into two pieces -- the second is due in February -- when it really needed to be one long, delirious ride. show more

    Is Kill Bill a homage to great Asian action movies? Yes. Is Tarantino trying to outdo his cherished masters (on a budget that dwarfs their films)? Of course. Is there any other point of any of this? Let's see "Vol. 2." show more

    Kill Bill: Volume 1 shows Quentin Tarantino so effortlessly and brilliantly in command of his technique that he reminds me of a virtuoso violinist racing through "Flight of the Bumble Bee" -- or maybe an accordion prodigy setting a speed record for "Lady of Spain." show more

    The worst thing about the first Quentin Tarantino picture in five years is that after 93 minutes of some of the most luscious violence and spellbinding storytelling you're likely to see this year, Kill Bill ends. show more

    Although this installment is a beautiful stand-alone thang (check out how its chronology-juggling storyline creates a perfect circle, structure-wise). show more

    There's a new movie on the way about Bill's death- the real Bill, that is. David Carradine was found dead in a Thai hotel a year ago, and now his ex-wife has written a book about his untimely demise. I'm sure the book will talk about he autoerotic asphyxiation claims. KIll Bill Vol. 1 was definitely Carradine's and Tarantino's best films. I think Vol. 1 was much better than the sequel. The action was much more intense.

    This was an excellent movie that I know will have a good sequel. Quentin Tarantino has really out done it in another ultimate action movie. Anyone who loves action movies should see this immediately.
